More details have emerged about the death of beauty queen Zoe Sozo Bethel at age 27.

According to Miami police, Bethel attempted suicide by jumping off a seven-story condo in Miami on Feb. 10.

Bethel, Miss Alabama 2021 for America Strong, suffered catastrophic head injuries and was taken off life support on Feb. 18.

Miami police tell that Bethel tried to commit suicide by leaping off the seventh floor of a Miami condo. She was transported to a local hospital in critical condition.

Bethel's family announced her untimely death in an Instagram post.

"On Friday, February 18, 2022, at approximately 5:30AM Eastern time in Miami, Florida, our beloved Zoe Sozo Bethel passed from this life into the next as a result of succumbing to her injuries. Zoe touched the hearts of many people and was actively affiliated with several organizations and groups."

In addition to being Miss Alabama, Bethel was a conservative activist and an American patriot with deep Christian values. She was a political commentator for conservative media network RSBN, and a brand ambassador for Turning Point USA, according to NY Daily News.

She was also a spokeswoman for Students for Life and affiliated with Project Veritas, her family said.

Ezra Blount, the 9-year-old boy who was trampled at Travis Scott's Astroworld music festival, has died.

The family's attorney Ben Crump confirmed Ezra's death in a statement late Sunday. Ezra is the youngest victim of the Astroworld tragedy.

Ezra was pronounced brain dead and removed from life support at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. He had been in a medically-induced coma to relieve pressure on his brain.

Ezra was sitting on his dad's shoulder when the crowd surged forward as surprise guest Drake took the stage at NRG Park on Nov. 5.

Treston Blount said he lost consciousness and collapsed and his son was trampled when he fell into the crowd.

The unconscious boy was admitted to Texas Children's Hospital under the name John Doe. His frantic family found him hours later and identified him.

Ezra is the second victim to die in the past week, and the tenth Astroworld death overall.

The family filed a lawsuit against Travis Scott and others on Tuesday.

Over 50,000 fans attended Day 1 of what was to be a two-day music festival. Experts say a crowd surge can produce more than 1,000 pounds of pressure at the front of the stage.

Over 100 lawsuits have been filed naming Scott, Live Nation Entertainment, NRG Park, and other entities as co-defendants.

A $26 million insurance policy was in place in case of deaths or injuries. However, lawsuit damages are expected to top $100 million.

Scott, 29, earned over $65 million from Astroworld ticket sales and sponsorships.

DMX's family insists he received the experimental mRNA Covid-19 vaccine days before suffering a heart attack.

The 50-year-old rapper, born Earl Simmons, was admitted to the intensive care unit at a White Plains, NY hospital on Friday, April 2.

It was widely reported that DMX suffered a heart attack after overdosing on drugs. TMZ claimed his brain was deprived of oxygen for 30 minutes.

However, his family said DMX's heart attack may have been in "reaction to the vaccine".


In a statement on Thursday, the family said drugs were not involved in the rapper's condition.

"[DMX] got the vaccine when they opened it up to people over 50. He got it so that he could go travel and perform, stuff like that," the statement read. "He took that vaccine, and he had a heart attack. I'm not saying the vaccine did it, but he never had a heart attack before."

DMX is reportedly in a "vegetative state" with minimal brain activity. His family is considering taking him off of life support machines.

Brain scan tests on Wednesday determined his minimal brain activity had not improved since Friday.
